Step Five of AA’s Alcoholics Anonymous Twelve Step Program is essential to the fundamental change of personality required to overcome an alcohol or drug addiction. In its simplest form, the fifth step is basically a confession of personal wrongdoings and the beginnings of your spiritual housecleaning.
Although in step four we admitted the exact nature of our wrongs, the process of clearing away the wreckage of the past would not be completed until we have shared those wrongs with another person in step five. A well-chosen person to be part of this healing process helps us to become aware of our own self-delusion, where we have not been sincere, and where there are patterns of destructive thoughts and behaviors.
The exact wording of step 5 is:
We admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
